Monday Musings {3/4}

It's been quite a while since I've joined my friend Charlotte with some Monday Musings! Feel free to post your own musings ~ tell me in the comments so I can come visit! :)

What I'm thinking: That I can't believe I even got up before the time I was trying for this morning! I'm doing the 30-Day Early to Rise Challenge with Money Saving Mom. My goal is 6am right now and this morning I took a pic of my alarm clock at 5:56am!

What I'm reading:  Reading Ecclesiastes in the Bible and trying to finish Organized Simplicity ~ The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living by Tsh Oxenreider . Also reading Early To Rise - Learn to Rise Early in 30 Days by Andy Traub on my Kindle.

What I'm listening to: The hum of appliances and...silence. I'm up before my family! There were loud chirping birds earlier.

What we're learning: Son is learning HTML from a free class that meets at his school on Saturdays! He's so excited about it! Maybe one of these days he can redesign my blog for me - LOL! I am learning how to jog 3 miles - jogging over 2 miles at this point with a group of ladies who are doing Couch-to-5K with me!

What I'm watching: Watched Amazing Race - I enjoy the show because of seeing all the different countries and the interesting competitions. We watched some of The Bible on the History channel last night. Interesting to see it all in action, but as expected we didn't quite agree with the way they portrayed some of the stories.

What's cooking: At this point I don't even know what we're having for dinner tonight - oops! I do know that I want to make these Chocolate-Cranberry Energy Bites from My Blessed Life this week - yum.

What I'm buying: Hopefully not much this week - other than gas in the cars. And not sure how much gas is where you live, but here in northern CA it's basically back to $4 a gallon. Ick. I already bought plenty of things last week - did a Costco trip plus I got new running shoes!

What I'm thankful for: So very thankful for my sweet little family! I am so blessed with a wonderful husband and son! And I'm always thankful for hubs' job, which has been stable in this ever-changing economy. He's worked there for over 12 years.

What I'm creating: Does a clean home count? :) I'm trying to catch up on all the areas that got so behind and fixing the decor as I go.

What I'm planning: More C25K jogs this week - 28-minute jogs this time. Our Christian School's Open House is tonight so we'll go take a look around. The Junior High kids will have their science project reports and display boards out {kiddo did his on Super Cooled Water}. And Saturday I'll be taking a CPR/First Aid class with our Boy Scout troop.

What we did this last weekend: Went on a 25-minute jog with my C25K ladies while son was at his class. Then son had a friend over who spent the night - I just tried to catch up on cleaning. Yesterday we went to church and then home so hubs and son could go to a class to learn more about first aid. Not really an exciting weekend.

What I'm looking forward to: The beginning of Spring and kiddo's Spring Break starting at the end of the month - woo hoo! :) What I'm *not* looking forward to - just saw a comment on another blog that reminded me about the time-change coming next weekend! I don't want to lose that hour - LOL!

A picture to share:
New running shoes to protect my feet and keep me motivated to keep on going! :)

What are your plans for the week?

Have a blessed day friends!


  1. I'm not looking forward to losing that hour either. YUCK! I like your new running shoes. It sounds like you are doing really well. I may need to look into starting a small group here but it would have to happen before Summer. LOL!
    Oh and tell your son he's got a job when he gets done learning about HTML. I've been wanting to do something with my blog for a long time now but too cheap to spend to much money.

    Big I think you should start running this way so I can see you again size hugs to you!
    Love ya!

  2. A clean house absolutely counts as creating in my book! I love the purple on the shoes and can't wait for the time change. It will take a couple days to adjust, but I look forward to it from the day we fall back.

    Is this the Monday Musings format? I really like it. Interesting variety here.

  3. You are doing such a great job with the jogging! And good for you, getting up early. I still have lots of trouble with that and really try to peel my eyelids open by 7am.

    Loved this post, Lisa!

  4. Hey - I didn't know you are doing the "Early to Rise" challenge! Awesome! I just bought the book yesterday and am trying to start my 30 days on Monday. GULP! I just blogged about it today.
